The English Question II: Elite-Driven Devolution Deals

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Drawing on an extensive set of elite interviews with politicians and civil servants at local and national level, this chapter considers the process that led to the announcement of a devolution deal for Greater Manchester in November 2014. The chapter shows how the devolution model has become a template for other deals, marking a significant development in the governance of England. It reconstructs what was an elite-driven process, with a deal negotiated in secret, and poses questions about the democratic legitimacy of that process.
